Just after the eight o'clock hour, Station 85 was dispatched for a vehicle fire ITAO Jefferson Crossroads. 85-8 responded with Chief Hopkins immediately after dispatch. While responding station 75 advised they had a crew available, in station if needed. Chief Hopkins advised them to respond to the scene with an engine. 85-8 arrived to find a single vehicle fully involved. Engine 85-4 arrived shortly after 85-8 and placed the front bumper line in-service to extinguish the fire. Engine 75-3 arrived seconds later and deployed their front bumper line to assist 85-4's crew with extinguishment. Shortly after command placed the scene under control and returned all units. Chief Hopkins commanded the incident.

Units responding, Engines 4 and 5, Engine 75-3, Rescue 85, 85-8, B-85, DSP, DSFP.

This alarm was a great example of neighboring departments working together and utilizing available manpower to serve the best interest of the public regardless of "district boundaries".
